Michigan: Commutation of Sentence

Roosevelt Moore was convicted in 1970 for the slaying of a liquor store employee, during a robbery. Gov. Jennifer Granholm has commuted Moore's life sentence in such a manner that (it is reported) he "is likely to be freed soon." Moore is also said to be "medically fragile" and it is reasoned that he poses no "physical threat" to anyone "in the community.” See story here.
